Chomp on Chomps!
It’s no secret that there is a lot of junk food lust in my past. Yes, my mom and dad were excellent cooks and taught me my way around the kitchen. Yes, we ate dinner together as a family almost every night – around 5:00 p.m. – until I graduated from high school. And yes, our meals usually included meat, vegetables, and salad (along with rice!).
But I also snarfed my way through plenty of frozen pizza, nacho cheese Doritos, and Slim Jims. I really loved a Slim Jim. Both the greasy, spicy snack stick…
… and the drummer for my beloved Stray Cats.
When I stopped eating junky, packaged food, I said “goodbye” to Slim Jims forever.
But thanks to Chomps Snack Sticks, the spicy meat in a snappy stick form is back!
Made from 100% grass-fed beef—and Whole30 Approved—Chomps are portable protein power, and they taste really freakin’ good. Very flavorful, but not overly spicy, they taste like meat, without the overly-smoky flavor of jerky. They’re tender with a satisfying, crisp-to-the-bite exterior – and they are totally junk free, gluten free, and sugar free. The recipe uses celery juice as a preservative, so no refrigeration necessary, and that also means the sticks are free of synthetics, antibiotics, nitrates, and nitrites.
Check out the ingredients:
- grass-fed beef
- citric acide
- black pepper
- red pepper
- garlic powder
… all stuffed in a collagen casing.
If you’re looking for an on-the-go protein source – or a way to relive the glory days of junk food indulgence, without the junk food – you should chomp on some Chomps!

Check out the Real Sticks from Vermont Smoke and Cure as well. The black pepper is our favorite and has such a tiny pinch of sugar that it’s still zero carbs. Yum!
